THS coaching search in its 'second stage'

Tupelo High School athletics director Danny Porter said the search for a boys basketball coach is headed to its second stage.

“We're in the process of narrowing it down,” he said. “We had some really good applicants. We're excited about it.”

Porter said the second stage could include follow-up interviews.

“We don't want to rush,” he said. “You want to take your time and get the right person.”

THS is replacing David Ball, who resigned last month after six seasons.
